Kids’ Measurement Chart Printable, Big News and some Winners!

2016 February 24

Whew – fun things going on over here. Today’s post is full of random fun facts about what’s going on at Thread Riding Hood. Including the 3 winners of the latest giveaways!

In the midst of lots of recent quilt piecing fun I’ve posted on Facebook and Instagram, I updated my Free Measurement Chart Printable for you today! I just realized I haven’t measured my girls recently and we’re going to need to because it is Easter dress planning time again. I added some better numbering and a few more measurements to the original chart. Head over to the Measure-Me Chart post or click below to get the new printable. I’m hoping to update the photos as well, but my printer has informed me I can’t print anything because I am out of ink. Argh! 

I love making the girls super fancy dresses at least once a year – especially in time for Easter Sunday. Right now I’m leaning toward the Violette dress. While the girls still like being princesses! Of course I still have to run it by them and see what they think. I’d hate to gather that much tulle if they won’t wear it more than once! I’ve got some gold dupioni silk scraps that might stretch to make the bodice and peplum for one dress. Overkill maybe, but the scraps are too small for a “me-sized” project, so I may as well use them up! Here are some past Easter dresses – I love all of these patterns! You can click on them to link to more photos. (Crazy how big these girls are getting!)

What is your favorite little/medium sized girls’ dress pattern?

BIG NEWS! If you haven’t been over to Instagram lately, check out the machine Janome has loaned me to play with right now! I’ll be sharing a fun series with them leading up to Toronto’s Spring Creativ Festival. I’m really excited to let you know that Janome is sponsoring me as I present a trunk show once each day at the Festival this spring. Eeek!

WINNERS! I know, I held off until the end, thanks for being patient…. Here are the winners of the recent giveaways! 

First off, Country Clothesline gave away two 12 fat quarter bundles during their Valentine’s sale. How gorgeous are these?!

Last but definitely not least, Fabric Please! made someone very happy by giving away a Lil’ Red layer cake! I love the quilt top I was able to make with mine. The colours are super happy! (Quick tip: their 1st Year Anniversary sale is still on until Friday, February 26, 2016!)

  1. February 25, 2016 – This is what I’ll be making for my daughter. The Pinwheel Tunic and Slip Dress from Oliver + S. I’ve never made it before, but I just made continuous bias tape for the first time just for it!

    Hi Sherri,
    Yikers! A Trunk Show at Creativ Festival. Way to go girl ;) Thank you and hubby so much for the ‘Measure Me’ printables. The charts are perfect to send to my daughter in St.Louis. I always forget one vital measurement in our emails/phone chats as I attempt to make a dress, costume etc. long distance.
    I am loving the Oliver dress pattern as well. Take care.

    Thanks for the update on the measure-me charts! Just needed to measure my kids again :) . My favorite dress pattern for girls ’till now is the Iridis Wrap Dress from Sofilantjes with the Circle skirt add-on I’ve made one for my eldest. It’s rather quick to sew, and she looks like a princess in it, I think. Needs lots of fabric for the skirt though.

    They are just the most beautiful little girls ever. Sure, I may be biased, but I’m still right, right? :)

    Hooray for the trunk show! Make sure you take lots of pictures for us to see!
